News, Updates, and Apologies


I apologize for the lack of posts, but I had a lot of exams to grade this semester (as well as finishing my own exams and papers), and I also had an important research project to finish for a conference as well as a multitude of other commitments. Posts should resume more regularly now that the semester has ended.

Piccole Guide Update

  1. Volume 3 of our Piccole Guide series is almost done! It is a language guide on important Italian verbs all users should now when learning Italian, key grammar tips, and other important aspects of Italian verbs.

    I just have to finish the appendix, and it will be available to all subscribers electronically. As the date gets closer, I will send out another email.

    Volumes 4 and 5 should also be ready this summer, too! Volume 6 will be completed (I hope) after Christmas and early 2019 if not sooner!

  2. Volume 1 of our Piccole Guide series on Italian Prepositions has been re-issued in “black and white” for those of you who requested a more economical paperback version of the language guide.

    The black and white versions of the remaining Piccole Guide will have the same titles but will not be published as a series (they will not be numbered), and all the black-and-white versions will be printed with covers featuring important places/sites from Firenze to distinguish them from the regular language series. Volume 1 is on Italian Prepositions, and you can get a copy in black-and-white for $4.79 (excluding shipping and sales tax, if applicable) from Copies will also be available for sale on Amazon, B&N, and other booksellers once the book is added to their respective online catalogs.

  3. Lastly, I just want to remind readers and visitors to the site that I am currently in a PhD program, and it requires a considerable amount of my time and energy. I just finished my second year, and I will be starting my third year in the Fall. I am still working on an effective workflow to keep the site up and running, but I am finding it to be a challenge. I hope to be able to automate some aspects of the web site this summer, time permitting!
